Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has banned Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni from stepping into his constituency until democratic reforms are initiated in the Republic of Uganda.
In a statement shared on all his social media platforms on Sunday, Babu Owino has alleged that Museveni owns several investments in Embakasi East and he will not let him have access in his region as he has already formed a special committee to investigate the source of Museveni’s wealth in Embakasi East.
This comes just a few days after president Museveni banned Babu Owino from stepping into Uganda and accused him of inciting his citizens in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace.
Here is the full statement by the Embakasi East legislator.

STATEMENT BY COMRADE BABU OWINO ON UGANDA TRAVEL BAN; I WILL NOT BE SILENCED! I am in receipt of official communication from the Minister for Internal Affairs for Uganda General Haji Abubakar seeking to ban my travel to Uganda without special clearance from his office. This draconian veto came just ahead of my trip to Kampala to attend the Kyalenga Festival yesterday. It is a backward and authoritarian response to my unequivocal support for Honorable Robert Kyagulanyi and the young people of Uganda against the tyranny of President Yoweri Museveni. Honorable Bobi Wine and I remain brothers in ideology and no amount of intimidation will stop us from working together to liberate the people of Africa! I wish to categorically state that General Haji’s ban will not deter me from agitating for greater democratic space in Uganda, Kenya and indeed, the entire continent. I will not falter in my pursuit for respect for human rights and the meaningful involvement of the youth in our nations’ affairs. The arc of the moral universe may be long but it always bends towards justice.President Museveni must know that nothing lasts forever. He has overstayed his welcome and soon, the popular wishes of the Ugandan people will outweigh his use of force and violence. I urge the youth in Uganda not to be discouraged from this minor set back,I will come to Uganda whether the guy is alive or dead.We will overcome! Signed and dated, Comrade Babu Owino, MP, Embakasi East and Leader, Youth For Africa Movement. Sunday, November 11, 2018.
